    I recently got an HTC Desire Z (called G2 in the USA). The reason I got an Android phone is because of it being a Linux based open source OS, which has much more potential of having awesome apps and mods than the closed up iOS. That, and I want a Qwerty keyboard on my phone.

    I currently have 3 emulators installed:

    Gensoid (Genesis/Mega Drive)
    SNESoid (SNES)
    Gameboid (Gameboy Advance)

    There are also emulators for the Atari-2600, the NES and the original Gameboy from this developer.

    These are the paid versions. I can live with spending a little more than 10 bucks total to play any SNES, Genesis and Gameboy Advance game on my phone without looking at ads, plus you can save at any time. Just grab the roms from the net, copy them to your phone and play. They're only a few MB each, which isn't much of a problem considering I have a 16GB card in there. It works great, too. No slowdowns of sound problems.

    I played through Sonic 3 and Streets of Rage 2 while waiting at the DMV last week. Highly recommended!

    By the way, check this out! It can't get much more awesome than that, really. 2nd screenshot.

    This would be awesome to have on your phone.? My only concern would be how much of the cell phone batteries it would take up in a short time.? Which phones can you get this with?? Is it a very limited amount.? It sounds like it might only work with the android.

    Your concern is always about batteries life.
